Our January Meeting

We began the New Year by welcoming to our January Meeting 4 visitors making 10 of us in all. Two of our visitors were the Chairman and his wife from the U3A Christchurch Pros & Cons Group which Bob and I had visited earlier in the month. Please click on the link if you would like to read a short report on our visit:

Visit to Pros and Cons Group

We looked at some of the topics that had been in the news since our December meeting and discussed the proposed merger of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole into one unitary authority. It was good to discuss a local question.

We then discussed the 3 questions agreed at our December Meeting. All very interesting and enjoyable.

Collective Answers to some of our Questions

As a trial run, we have published the Group's collective answers to 3 of our questions, to give examples of what we come up with:

Do have a look.

Our Next Meeting - Tuesday 13 February 2018 at 2 p.m.

At our next meeting, we will be discussing 3 questions, allowing time for topical questions:

  1. Sir David Attenborough has called for the world to cut back on its use of plastic in order to protect our oceans. How can this be done?

  2. Should begging be banned in town/city centres?

  3. The NHS needs urgent funding! Where should the money come from? Should NHS car parking fees be part of the solution?

If you have views on these topics and/or you would like to hear what others have to say, we would love to see you.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of us if you would like any further information:
